Surveys

Oct. 29, 2014 -- Inside Higher Ed's 2014 Survey of Faculty Attitudes on Technology examined the views of faculty members and academic technology administrators on online education and a range of other technology-related issues.

The survey was conducted in conjunction with researchers from Gallup. 

Inside Higher Ed regularly surveys key higher ed professionals on a range of topics. A copy of the report can be downloaded here.

On Nov. 18, Inside Higher Ed's Scott Jaschik and Carl Straumsheim conducted a free webinar analyzing the survey's findings and answering readers' questions. To view the webinar, please click here.

The survey was made possible in part by financial support from Blackboard, Pearson and Sonic Foundry.

Teaching With Technology is our latest compilation of articles. As with other such print-on-demand booklets, the articles group together pieces that explore different strategies used by faculty members and institutions -- and efforts to track their success.

The booklet is free and you may download a copy here.

And you may sign up here for a free webinar on Feb. 17 at 2 p.m. Eastern about the themes of the booklet.

The Teaching With Technology booklet was made possible in part by the financial support of Blackboard.
